Besserat de Bellefon

Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Grand Cru Chardonnay

Lime, lemon pith, chive, coconut water and cucumber freshness with a frozen sage leaf purity and rainy day aromas. Massive entry with bright lemon juice tempered by tartar biscuit, then overwhelmed by lime and orange zest, grapefruit whiteness, starfruit, gooseberry and chalky, racy, steely minerality that texturizes the whole as it rockets across the tongue, white pepper bobs in the citric river that flows endlessly beyond each sip. Incredible resonance! .

Cuvée Tradition Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Heady mushroom and a little black wood funk adjusts to clean lemongrass and white lavender with a light crepe aroma. Lemon curd and white pepper with the finest mousse that envelopes the palate completely, and beckons the lemon oil and mascarpone toast and pomelo marmalade. The culmination of these flavors lingers ethereal, floating atop chalky clouds and lime and floral essences. #grandcruvalue #grandcru #PaulEtienne #bubbles #blancdeblancs #frenchwine — 4 years ago

Near perfect. The #blancdeblancs from Mumm Napa age so beautifully, especially out of #magnums! Some fresh citrus notes, but smells and flavors of a bakery in full swing dominate, toasty almond and slightly burnt baguette. I have been waiting to #saber this wine for a while, my sons birthday was the perfect occasion. — 5 years ago

Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut Millésimé Chardonnay

Yeasty, marmalade and butter-biscuity! Lemon peel, olive oil, hazelnut and sesame. Fantastic texture, lively mousse, with a pronounced lemon after initial brioche. Clean as white marble; chalky, with a powdered lemon veracity. Dried violets and a touch of chicory flower. Creamy throughout and truly extraordinary! #GrandCru #grandcruclassé #grandcruvalue #grandcruclasse #champagnes #champagneday #champagnealldamnday #bubbles #bubblesalldamnday #champagnecampaign #frenchwine #blancdeblancs — 4 years ago

Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne Chardonnay 2011

Biscuits on the nose. Grapefruit and lemon extract. Sunflower husks, grilled carrot, cornflower, lemon bread, and a folding of butterscotch pudding over diatomaceous earth, lime leaf and chalk. Hard soda bread crust with exquisite lemon pulp and pith interplay. White pepper, iron shavings, salt and lime. Intensely balanced and intricate in its nuances. #Haton #Champagne #blancdeblancs #bubbles — 3 years ago
